Programma

The course will illustrate the differences and overlapping between the "mainstream view" and the "new emerging perspective" on global and local development. The mainstream view is built around three key dimensions: creative class, technological innovation and urban settlements. The new perspective emphasizes the role of new populations, the power of social innovation and the relevance of rural-urban settlements. These topics will be analyzed through the analytical lenses of key concepts such as: collective action, circular economy, foundational economy, cooperation and conflict, social capital and mission-oriented public action. Several case studies of local development facing global challenges or "wicked problems" will be illustrated.
